Spring 2022 Catechumenate

The Catechumenate is a community of learning, conversation, and fellowship in a gathering as old as Christianity itself. It is the journey to baptism, confirmation, reception into the Episcopal Church, or the reaffirmation of baptismal vows. Participation in the Catechumenate is also a wonderful way to learn more about Saint John’s as a cathedral and a community and to prepare for membership in the church. Classes will meet on Sundays from 1 to 2 pm. Due to the shortened nature of each class, please only register if you can be present at all four sessions with the clergy. More information and the links to register are at sjcathedral.org/catechumenate Catechumenate with Canon Katie Sundays, January 9, 16, 23, 30 Catechumenate with Dean Richard Sundays, March 6, 13, 20, 27
